Long Description:
"Since 1933, Murrysville has had a "tree sign" spelling out the word "Murrysville". The trees were landscaped to grow and form the letters by local Boy Scouts. The sign is situated on a large hill as one enters the borough from the Murrysville/Monroeville border, near U.S. Route 22.

In 1947, the sign was featured in "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" as the world's largest arboreal sign. [7] (It is no longer the world's largest, or even the largest in the country; "Luecke", near San Antonio, Texas , is much larger.)

The "Y" in the Murrysville sign points to the Haymaker Gas Well. "
